    Default Botanical Gardens

    Is it a good place for photos?

    Planning to go there later around 4pm when the light is good. Any ideas?

    Cheers, need advice of areas that are good.

    Everywhere are good to take photos, your own room, under your flat, orchard road, holland V, your own toilet, beaches, etc etc. depending on what you wanted to achieve.

    And yes... Botanical Garden is a good place to shoot photo.

    Depend on the lighting. If the location is dark, then you probably doesn't need an ND filter. If the location is bright, then yes, you need an ND filter.

    You would probably want to achieve at least a shutter speed of 6s or slower. Under most circumstances, you would need to cut out light with a ND filter. I would refrain from using too small an aperture as well.

    The most important thing you need to do is
    1) check the weather

    2) prepare for it (especially rainy day)

    Otherwise your equipment might not survive a total downpour and you won't ever shoot again...anywhere.

    You can shoot loooooooooong exposure without using any ND filter.

    Short answer, yes.

    Long answer, depend on what you intend to shoot. And if you like the weather, the design of the place, the number of people, the number of wildlife, the number of mosquitoes, etc.

    Do you think this will work with moving clouds?

    Yes, it will work.
    but, do you mind shooting hundreds of frames just to make one photo?

    I know most people won't.
    But for those who can understand this, it opens up doors for shots that even stacking 10 stops ND filters still won't able to achieve that.
